Editing PRTG graphs



I want to create two separate graphs i.e., for traffic in and traffic out. Can you tell me how do I change the traffic data graph which currently is showing four channels into one graph to four individual graphs for each channel?

the way to do this would be using the Sensor Factory Sensor, and then adding for of those each one showing one of the source channels.

best regards.

Thanks so much for the reply! I referred the link you provided but it seems there is a lot of mathematical work involved in this. I just want to see one graph with two channels into two individual graphs with one channel each. Is there any video tutorial for this?

I'm afraid there is no video tutorial for this. All you need are the Sensor IDs from the "Source Sensors" and the Channel IDs from the different channels (Traffic In/Out). Then you'll get a definition similar to:

#1: Traffic In for Sensor/Interface XYZ

Traffic In usually has the CHANNEL_ID '0' and Out has '1'. You'll then need one Sensor Factory Sensor per graph basically.
